Introducing our new Family Support Practitioners – Roni and Damienne

Roni is often seen around the office with her very large but gorgeous dog Billie. Ronnie is a Social Worker and is currently completing her Masters in Clinical Family Therapy.

Before Very Special Kids, Roni spent several years working in the Palliative Care and Trauma Units in hospitals. It’s highly likely your child will have their face painted by Roni at some stage as she is also extremely talented in this area!

On the weekends you’ll find her walking on the beach with her dog, having a long breakfast and roller-skating – not all at the same time!

 Damienne has a Graduate Diploma in Rehabilitation Counselling and has spent the last 7 years working as a Behavioural Therapist in early intervention with young children with Autism Spectrum Disorder, in schools, family homes and clinics.

Prior to that Damienne spent many years in the corporate and management consulting world but realised that people not numbers were her passion!

Damienne spends most of her weekends on the sidelines of various sporting fields for one of her 3 boys and when not kicking a ball around loves to get crafty or head out into nature.
